PREFACE. 


For  publishing  the  compressed  edition  of  the 
English  Baronetage,  which  is  brought  down  to 
the  period  of  the  last  creation  (April  1,  1806) 
no  apology  is  requisite.  Much  pains  has  beeu 
taken  by  the  Editor  to  render  it  correct;  and, 
while  the  portability  of  its  form  must  recom- 
mend it  to  public  notice,  its  being  the  only 
emvpLie  work  of  the  kind  gives  it  a  claim  to 
universal  patronage. 

To  the  English  Baronets,  Baronets  of  Great 
Britain,  and  of  the  United -Kingdom,  are  sub- 
joined accounts  of  some  Scottish  Baronets  of 
English  families ;  or  resident  in  England  ;  with 
correct,  lists  of  all  the  Scottish  and  Irish  Ba- 
ronets. 


INTRODUCTION. 


JL  HE  order  of  Baronets,  which  is  the  first  a-nonjf  the 
gentry,  and  the  only  knighthood  that  is  hereditary,  was 
instituted  by  King  Jamis  the  First  in  the  yea,r  1611,  who 
limircd  the  number  to  two  hundred;  but  since  that  period 
they  have  been  gre;itly  increased.  One  thousand  three 
hundred  and  eighty-two  Baronets  of  England,  Great 
Britain,  and  of  the  United  Kingdom,  have  been  created; 
and  excin8i\rely  of  those  who  have  attained  the  rank  of 
nobility,  the;e  are  now  existing  upwards  of  five  hundred. 
The  title  Sir  is  granted  to  ihem,  by  a  clause  in  dieir 
patents;  their  wives  are  Ladies;  and  they  have  prece- 
dence before  all  Knights,  except  Knights  of  the  Garter, 
Knights  who  are  Privy  Councillors,  or  Knights  Bannerets, 
made  under  the  King's  banner  or  standard. 

It  is  understood,  that  the  rebellion  of  the  Irish,  in  the 
province  of  Ulster,  gave  rise  to  this  order;  as  a  Baronet, 
on  his  creation,  must  pay  into  the  Exchequer  as  much  as 
will  maintain  thirty  soldiers  for  three  years,  at  eight-pence 
per  day,  in  the  province  of  Ulster,  in  Ireland,  which 
amounts  to  nearly  1 100/.  sterling  *. 

A  Baronet  of  England,  Great  Britain,  or  of  the  United 
Kingdom,  has  the  privilege  to  bear,  in  a  canton  of  his 
coat  of  arms,  or  in  a  whole  escutcheon,  the  arms  of  Ulstci", 

*  This  has  been  dispensed  with  of  late  years. 


INTRODUCTJON.  V 

viz :  hi  a  Jidd,  argent j  a  sinister  hand^  gules.  To  be  qua- 
lified, the  person  ought  to  be  a  gentleman  born,  and  have 
a  clear  estate  of  1000/.  per  annum. 

The  order  of  Baronets  in  Scotland  was  projected  by 
King  James  the  Sixth,  to  encourage  the  colonization  of 
the  proviiice  of  Nova  Ssrotia,  in  America,  the  first  settle- 
ment made  by  the  Scots  beyond  the  Atlantic ;  but  he 
dying  before  Lis  intentions  were  accomplished,  his  son, 
King  Charles  the  First,,  in  the  first  year  of  his  reign,  exe- 
cuted his  royal  father's  plan,  and  Instituted  this  order  im- 
mediately after  his  accession.     In  the  patents  granted  previ- 
ously to  the  year  1G29,  his  Majesty  declared  and  ordained, 
that  the  Earonets,  and  their  Jieir»  male,  should,  as  an 
addition  of  honour  to  their  armorial  ensigns,  bear,,  either 
on  a  canton,  or  inescutcheoii,  at  their  option,  the  eiisign 
of  Nova  Scotia,  being  Argait^  a  cress  of' St.  /^iidreiv,  azure, 
tharged  with  an  inescuicheon  of  tiie  royal  arms  of  Scotland  ; 
supported  on  the  dexter  by  the  royal  unicorn,  and  on  the 
finister  ly  a  savage^  or  wild  man,  proper  ^    and,  for  the 
crest,  A  branch  of  laurel  and  a  thistle,  issui7ig  from  two 
hands  conjoined^  the  one  being  armed,'  and  the  other  naked ; 
with  thi<motto,  Manet  hcec,  et  altera  vincit. ^  In  the  patents 
granted  in  tlie  year  1629,  and  subsequently  thereunto,  the 
above  clause  was  omitted,  but  another  privilege  gi"anted; 
viz :  that  the  Baronets,  and  their  heirs  male,  shall  wear, 
and  carry  about  their  necks,  anujrange  tannic  silk  ribbon, 
v.'hcreon  shall  be  pendent,  in  a  scutcheon,  argent,  asaltire, 
azure ;  thereon  an  inescutcheon  of  the  arms  of  Scotland, 
with  an  imperial  crown  above  the  scutcheon ;  and  encii- 
cled  with  this  motto,  F«j:  mentis  honesta  gloria.     This

badge  of  distinction  was  lost,  during  the  usurpation  of  the 
Long  Parliament,  and  Of  Oliver  Cromwell,  but  was  re- 
stored in  the  year  1775. 

The  order  of  JBaronets  in  Ireland  was  instituted  by 
King  James  the  First,  in  the  17th  year  of  his  reign,  sooa 
after  h^s  creation  of  the  like  dignity  in  England.  The 
Irish  Baronets  were  to  enjoy  the  same  privileges  as  those 
of  England ;  they  were  also  to  assist  in  the  reduction  of 
Ulster ;  they  had  the  same  arms  assigned  to  them ;  and 
were  to  pay  into  the  treasury  of  Ireland  the  same  fees,  &:c 
as  paid  in  England.  They  have  no  established  prece- 
dence in  this  part  of  the  kingdom,  but  are  on  the  same

on  the  29th  of  Aug.  1780,  then  in  his  21st  year,  created 
such  strong  suspicions,  that  the  body  was  taken  up  for 
examination,  after  it  had  been  deposited  in  the  family 
vault  at  Nev.'bold ;  and  in  pursuance  of  the  verdict  of  a 
coroner's  inquest,  Mr.  Donellau  was  committed  to  prison 
at  Warwick :  where  he  was,  on  the  ?9th  of  March  fol-

ter and  heiress  of  - — -  Wolstan,  of  Wolstanjin  Warwick- 
sliire,  about  seven  hundred  years  since.  But  Dugdale  in-

Caron  of  Shipbrooke,  at  the  Conquest;  and  by  a  pedigree^ 
in  the  possession  of  the  Countess  of  Shipbrooke,  it  appears 
that  his  name  ought  to  be  Vernon,  and  Baron  of  Ship- 
brooke, if  such  a  title,  granted  by  the  Earls  of  Chester, 
could  now  be  taken.  The  eighteenth  in  descent,  froxh

366  HERON. 

This  family  came  into  England  with  William  the  Con- 
queror, who  divided  Northumberland  into  feudal  baro- 
nies; one  of  which,  the  Barony  of  Heron,  whereof 
Hadeston  was  the  head,  he  granted  in  1 100  to  the  ance<> 
tor  of  Sir  Robert.  In  1296  it  descended  to  Emeline  the 
heir  general  of  William  Lord  Heron,  her  grandfather. 
She  married  John  Lord  Darcy,  and  in  1536  the  Baronies 
of  Darcy  and  Heron  were  forfeited  by  the  attainder  of 
their  descendant,  Thomas  Lord  Darcy.  Upon  the  descent 
of  Hadeston  to  Emeline  Heron,  Ford  Castle  became 
the  chief  seat  of  this  family,  which  divided  into  many 
branches;  particularly  those  of  Ford  Ca'tle,  Bokenfjild, 
Chipchase,  Arplynden,  Cressy,  and  Newark;  some  of 
which  at  length  failed  for  want  of  male  heirs;  and  others 
uni  ted  again  in  the  ancestors  of  the  Baronet.  In  1682,  on 
the  death  of  John,  the  last  Heron  of  Bokeniield  without 
male  issue,  Robert  Heron,  then  of  Newark,  his  first-^cou- 
sin,  became  chief  of  the  family.  He  married  Mary  daugh- 
ter of  William  Hobman  of  Newark,  and  died  1709.  John 
Heron,  Esq.  his  son,  married  Jane  Crayle,  daughter  of 
Richard  Crayle  of  Newark;  and  died  1727.  His  eldest, 
and  only  surviving  son  Robert,  married  Elizabeth  Breck- 
nock of  Thorney- Abbey,  and  died  1753.  They  had  John, 
who  died  at  Paris  1753,  without  male  issue  ;  Thomas,  the 
father  of  the  present  Baroniet,  who  died  at  Chilham  Castle 
April  28,  1794;  Robert,  who  married  Anne  Pechell ;  and 

I.  Sir  RICHARD,  created  a  Baronet,  with  remainder, 
in  default  of  male  issue,  to  his  brother  Thomas.  He  mar- 
ried Jane  Hall,  widow  of  Stephen  1  hompson,  Esq.  but 
had  no  issue.  In  1777,  Sir  Richard  was  sworn  a  privy 
counsellor  in  Ireland,  and  held  the  office  of  chief  secretary 
of  that  kingdom  for  nearly  four  years.  He  died  at  the

duction of  Apulia,  and  William  the  Conqueror  In  his 
expedition  against  England,  where  he  was  rewarded  with 
large  grants  of  land.  It  would  far  exceed  the  limits  o^ 
this  work,  to  particularise  the  several  succeeding  distin- 
guished personages  of  this  family,  which  preserved  in  a 
great  measure  its  grandeur  and  importance,  until  the 
reign  of  Henry  VI.  when  they  entirely  lost  their  posses* 
sims  in  France,  and  much  of  thdx  .Epglish. property.  In
